When you press Exit button on remote controller while using Kodi, this player won't stop playback. It will exit to one of the menu pages that you've been browsing before playback, but will continue playing movie in so-called "mini-player" in the background.

This is a core functionality. It seems you cannot turn it off or disable it using configuration.

What am I missing here? How can "exit" mean "continue"?

    It's a misconception of the context. That's why descriptive labels are so important. Always add context to button actions unless the context is unmistakably clear.
